for america, two conflicting views of government, a clash of ideas about the kind of democracy we want. it could hardly be a more stark choice for the country. but this is also personal it's about two men and who are and how they will connect with the american people. no doubt about it, this is a big night. join me now, cynthia tucker and erin mcpike who covers the campaign for real clear politics. thank you both for coming on the show. >> thank you. >> thanks for having me. >> erin, let me go to you first. mitt romney is behind. what does he need to cover up? what does he need to do tonight? >> he needs to show, especially middle class voters, that he has a plan. we've already heard from the obama campaign that the president is likely to push mitt romney on specifics and in the past couple of days he has telegraphed that we might see more specifics like immigration, especially tax policy. that's what we're going to be hearing more from him tonight, some specifics so that when a president bushes him, he's ready. >> now, one of the big gaffes or big mistakes, sin nilla, that we've seen

to go through bankruptcy before government help and finally that's what the president did. so i'll take a lot of credit that this industry has come back. >> see, he told the president to let detroit go bankrupt so he should take the credit for saving detroit. and he's just as hapless on taxes. >> raise taxes with obama care but he's got another taxes in mind. >> governor romney doesn't need zingers. he needs to get his story straight. he needs to stop debating himself. and at the end of the day, this election isn't about one liners. just ask our president. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security for hardworking americans. that's what people are going to be listening for. that's the debate that you deserve. >> that's the debate voters deserve. and on wednesday night, they won't be distracted by any zingers cooked up by romney's team of joke writers. joining me now is michelle cottle, washington corresp

insidious here is that the people who collect economic data for our government are really good. they really care about the integrity of their numbers. if there was something wrong here, they would cry to the heavens to say, somebody is manipulating these numbers. >> yeah, but the point is, if somebody was manipulating the numbers, why have high unemployment numbers in the first place? the problem, e.j. -- and i want you to weigh in on this, too, joan, they are now reaching to find a rational for why romney is running. if unemployment is now going down, if you have 30 months of private job creation, if you have bin laden dead, why is romney running? that's the problem they are getting if these numbers are out and they are out and they are valid numbers. >> he's losing rationale, and, you know, he began to lie today on the campaign trail because i think he said, what's happening is that people are losing fact, they are leaving the labor market. they are discouraged workers. that is absolutely not true, reverend al. one of the great things about this job report today is that it reflects good g

-loading victims who mooch off the government. >> not to worry about those people. they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. >> this is a scary movie for the romney team. and it's not ending well. there's been an avalanche of negative reaction since it came out over two weeks ago. the new nbc poll is just out. it shows 45% of americans see mr. romney more negatively after hearing the tape. almost half the country. another poll shows a majority of americans, 55%, had a negative reaction to hearing romney's words on the tape. and the big one, president obama leads nationally by seven points. mr. romney should be spooked, but the real fright night is tomorrow, when he'll have to stand up there and answer to the 47% and to the president. >>> joining me now is former pennsylvania governor ed rendell, now an nbc news political analyst and elisia menendez. thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> i hope you like the sound effects, governor, i did it for you. >> if you get any thinner, you'll look like a skeleton on halloween night. >> oh e well, we'll talk about that anot

in the government's revenue. now, what governor romney says is i can make that up by closing tax expenditures and loopholes, but there's two problems with that. one, the arithmetic. if you you just look at people over $200,000, if you just look at the wealthiest couple of percent, the revenue cuts about $250 billion and the deductions, the broadening of the base gets you back about 160. so you're short about 90 billion. there's the math right there. and i heard absolutely nothing last night in a makes those numbers magically work out. in fact one of the things that governor romney said last night, he said, quote, i will not reduce the taxes paid by high income americans. now, this is a guy going around talking about the extent of his tax cuts. he said i will not reduce the taxes paid. a lot of people are scratching their heads. >> and they'll keep scratching. let me tell you something very interesting, bob. there was another candidate for president who also argued his tax cuts wouldn't benefit the rich. he said it during a presidential debate on the exact same date, october 3rd, in 2000. a de

, he is, um, got a socialistic view on the, you know, economy, the government, the whole nine yards. if he had his way, we would be a socialistic country. >> and earlier this week in virginia, a gop group posted offensive photos of the president on facebook, photoshopped to make him look like a witch doctor or caveman, even one showing the president beg the country, come on baby, give me one more chance. but there's also real big money behind some of this ugliness. the daily beast reports voters in three key states from day one has been a neverending onslaught of ugly attacks but this garbageness shows their weakness. they can't go on the substance so they go ugly. it's not bertha time it's primetime. two men go under the lights for the first debate and as we head to the home stretch, the other side will keep this ugliness going. so what are you doing to combat this ugliness? watch the debate for substance, for programs, for who stands up for the right america and then vote based on substance. vote based on the future of this country. vote based on what you know will improve this na
